Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust and Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust – Election to the Council of Governors

Salford Royal


Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust (SRFT) and the Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust (PAT), have joined together to create a Group of hospitals to deliver a variety of local healthcare services.

As part of this exciting work to create a Group, Salford Royal’s Council of Governors spent time thinking about how the public and staff members, and communities, of both organisations could be represented. In March 2017, Salford Royal’s Council of Governors approved changes to its own composition, and agreed to establish a subcommittee, to be known as the Shadow Group Council of Governors. This committee would comprise of all Salford Royal Governors and appointed and elected Shadow Governors from the Pennine Acute Hospital NHS Trust.

Elections are now open for Public Governors in the following constituencies:

Public Governors:

o   Salford (5 seats)

Shadow Public Governors:

o   Bury and Rochdale (5 seats)

o   Oldham (3 seats)
